Beyond Our Ken Series 4 Vol 2 (CD)
Nine more episodes from the fourth series of the popular radio comedy, plus bonus programme Forty Laughing Years.
A madcap mix of sketches and songs, it remains as funny today as when it was first broadcast. Full of witty wordplay, larger-than-life characters, comic catchphrases and sublimely silly humour, the show introduced regulars such as Rodney and Charles, countryman Arthur Fallowfield and roving reporter Cecil Snaith.
In these evergreen shows, Kenneth Horne's escapades include trying to get his windows cleaned, recounting the story of Raffles, being offered the freedom of the city of Giggleswade, and dealing with some morning callers. Meanwhile, Hornerama investigates topics of immediate interest, including 'Love and Marriage', 'Old British Customs' and 'The Film Industry'.
There's also musical interludes from the Hornets, Janet Waters and the BBC Variety Orchestra.
